New Meetup: San Juans trip Sept 13,14 - Begginners are OK

From: Saul_K

Announcing a new Meetup for Seattle Area Sea Kayaking Meetup Group!

What: San Juans trip Sept 13,14 - Begginners are OK

When: September 13,[masked]:30 AM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: I will be leading a San Juans overnight kayak camping trip
I haven't decided the exact route, but we will take a ferry to either Friday Harbor or to Orcas, I will finalize the route by Wednesday. This is one of the more suitable for begginers paddles that I put together but I still prefer that you take some of Bob's Tuesday night training sessions prior to the trip. I will hold the number of sign ups down to make sure that I get an appropriate skill mix, so if it's full and you want to go, RSVP. We will catch either the 8:45 ferry to Friday Harbor or the 10:05am ferry to Orcas.

We will either be paddling from Friday Harbor to Turn Island.
or we will be paddling from Olga to Doe Island

If the event is full, RSVP no and say that you want to go and say if you need a boat. It is a pretty sheltered paddle and you can stay within 100 feet of shore if you'd like.
If we go to Orcas, I plan on bringing a bicycle and doing some riding as well.

The following trip is rated SK1+/SK2, see descriptions at this link:

I would like someone to carpool with me and share driving as I will be flying into SeaTac at 7pm the night before, going to my 30th reunion and after getting the kayaks ready, won't get much sleep.

We will return to Anacortes on a ferry at about 4 or 5pm.
